How can I setup a private build farm for exercising OpenCSW packages creation and modification?

The setup of GAR to build packages using the OpenCSW build system is described at GAR Setup
Alright. That is the setup of a GAR environment. What I want to know is also how to build and verify a package on the private build farm, e.g., use pkgcheck, &c
Dago, I suspect that these instructions will be eventually migrated to the manual, is that right?
In the developer manual to be written after the admin and user docs, right.
As of October 2013, we have a set of consolidated instructions.
You can skip setting up a shared checkpkg database, and indexing the local mirror, but checkpkg triggering autoindexing will get annoying very quickly. You're better off setting up a shared database once, and then only doing quick incremental updates.
Setting up buildfarms happens rather rarely, so the process and the documentation will probably never be 100% accurate and up to date. If you get started with it and get stuck at any point, please show your issue / error message and we'll help out and adjust the documentation.
